The tar command is short for "tape archive" and was originally used to shuffle data to and from magnetic tapes, usually for backup purposes. However, the tool can also be used to create and manipulate archives of ordinary files. " These two commands are used to create files that contain other files. They are very similar to the ZIP file format commonly used on other operating systems such as Windows and IBM's OS/2. Unlike ZIP, however, they do not themselves provide any compression of the data, but rather are simply "containers" of other files.

Glibc doesn't include some of the optional system libraries; these other libraries are usually installed individually, as separate packages. o, where "foo" is the name of the library. By this convention, libc refers to the C libraries. o, so it is somewhat poorly named. System libraries are probably one of the three most difficult pieces of software to write, along with a kernel and a compiler. So, once you have a functional set of system libraries (or kernel or compiler), think long and hard before going off and starting your own.

In other words, the terms "shuts down" and "starts up" are relative; if the system just started up, there's nothing to shut down, and vice versa. The ways in which you instruct init to switch runlevels vary by system; the most "portable" method is to use the telinit command, but most systems provide alternative commands such as shutdown. What actually happens when that script is run is up to the script. This script is like any program, and can be as complex or as simple as the author chooses to make it.
